New spot found on liver thru ct. Early bt show increase liver enzymes. Us show fullness kidney & cyst on gallbladder. What does this mean?

Hard to say: Have you had a colonoscopy? It is hard to say what the spot on your liver is without looking at your films... This could be a simple cyst, but if it is new, it could be a colon cancer (or other kind of tumor). You need a proper exam, including a colonoscopy if you haven't had one yet. If that is negative, it may require a biopsy. ...Read more

I have severe upper left abdominal pain and a 9.1cm kidney cyst. No gallbladder. Very painful to breathe deep or touch abdomen. Can't empty bladder. Why?

See MD/urgent care: Should seek medical attention if persistent and severe, since may be more serious condition - especially if belly is tender.

What to do if I have a 2mm polyp (cyst) on my gallbladder, what can I do for the pain?

Gallbladder polyps: GB polyps less than 5 mm are almost always benign and caused by cholesterolosis. A followup ultrasound is advised after a year to ensure not growing. Polyps 6-10 mm. Need more close followup, 3 and 6 months, then yearly. Polyps 10 mm and larger may be cancerous, 20 mm and up almost always malignant. Yours is tiny, no worry, do US in a year.

I have a cyst close to the gallbladder fossa. I have had a cholecystectomy and have reacurring pain. Could this be remanent gallbladder left over?

Cyst: I believe that your surgeon and the radiologist should review your images and come up with a plan to further identify the exact nature of the mass and determine what other studies or procedures would be most helpful in pinpointing the diagnosis (ct scan, mri). I would be concerned about an abscess, for example. Would a needle biopsy be advisable? Is an exploratory operation indicated? ...Read more

What does a gallbladder sludge and cyst in the liver mean?

Benign findings: Gallbladder sludge can be seen with rapid weight loss, prolonged fasting, really sick patients with low/absent oral intake or use of tpn. Certain drugs (i.e. Ceftriaxone) can also cause it. The clinical course of sludge varies - often going away if the causative agent is eliminated. Asymptomatic patients require no therapy. If symptomatic or complications arise cholecystectomy may be indicated. ...Read more

What's a gallbladder sludge and how is it treated? I've been diagnosed with a large sludge, and cyst in my liver.

Sand: I think of sludge at sand in the gallbladder. Not stones but a precursor to stones in the form of a sandy substance. If you have symptoms that could be related to the gallbladder, the gallbladder should be removed. Depending on the size, location, and symptoms, the cyst could also be treated surgically at the same time. ...Read more

My c.a.t scan shows I have an ovarian cyst and gallstones. Which issue should I take care of first? Do I have to remove my gallbladder?

U/s for gallbladder polyp and liver cyst came back fine except said spleen mild enlarge 12.2 cm. I am 48 and 5"9. Scared what does this mean?

Nothing serious: Spleen size is somewhat variable in each person. So there is no serious condition which I can think of, when a spleen is reported as "mildly enlarged" Any radiology report which says slight or mild abnormaility is mostly insignificant because a radilogist is not always sure of what may be normal or close to normal. So they often place a comment like this to cover themselves...purely defensive act! ...Read more

Can person be born without gallbladder? 48 yr old f had 2 CT scans say I have no g/b found cyst on adrenal gland is this dangerous

Yes and probably no.: About. 09 percent of adults seem to have congenital absence of the gallbladder. Very important that this is known if you are evaluated for abdominal pain since not seeing the gallbladder can mean a scarred inflamed gb requiring removal. If the gb is absent and the surgeon doesn't know there can be severe damage done to the bile ducts during laparoscopic surgery for gb removal. ...Read more

Before gallbladder removal, a gallstone got stuck and I then developed pancreatitus. A pancreatic cyst developed also. Should I be concerned, pancreas?

Before gallbladder removal, a gallstone got stuck and I then developed pancreatitus. A pancreatic cyst developed also. Should I be concerned, pancreas?

No: If the pancreatitis was related to a gallstone, then removal of your gallbladder will help prevent future episodes of pancreatitis. The pancreatic cyst typically resolves on its own. If you experience recurrence of pancreatitis, consider formation of a stone / sludge in the common bile duct (choledocholithiasis) or a different cause (alcohol, meds, triglyceride or calcium levels). ...Read more

Cyst in liver and cyst in thyroid. Tubal and appendectomy. What r my chances for having gallbladder sludge removed laproscopy?

Cyst in liver and cyst in thyroid. Tubal and appendectomy. What r my chances for having gallbladder sludge removed laproscopy?

Not likely: Treatment would be a laparoscopic cholecystectomy. The gallbladder stores bile and pushes it into the intestines in response to eating fat in a meal. Bile is a salt in solution. In gallbladder disease, the gallbladder is not exchanging the bile properly causing the bile to sit there. Like sugar in a jar of water, if it sits there, eventually it comes out of solution forming sludge. ...Read more

Dear doctors. Should I be alarmed of the CT scan result showed:- focal adenomyosis at the gallbladder fundus n probable hepatic cyst.

Depends on findings: Adenomyosis of the gallbladder appears to be a harmless incidental (= unexpected & not related to study reason) finding on radiologic studies, typically no symptoms. Liver cysts are common; CT scan usually can tell if harmless or not. Depending on degree of suspicion, if CT cannot tell or if cyst is large, might repeat CT in a few months, test the fluid, occasionally remove cyst, or other tests. ...Read more
